Seen several signs around Eureka, Ill, advertising a antique pull on the 28th. Called several of the sponsors and they didn't know any details. Finally did determine they had classes up to 10,500 lbs. Looking for more details, such as are radials allowed, rpm limits, ground speed limits, years eligible, and if dyno checked. If it is a wide open, run what you brought type pull, or if only for the maxed out old tractors with $10,000 engines, probably will attend but not pull. If pretty much stock or slightly warmed-up field tractors might be interested. Plan is to look for a poster at a Casey's if nothing shows up here.

They have a new guy in charge of the antiques at Laura. They will be running stock type classes as well as some higher rpm oper type classes. I have been going there for 7 yrs, not a bad pull plus the porkchop and porkburger sandwiches are great!!!

Strictly Farm Stock - no front/back weights, cut/radial tires - pretty much just bring them outa the shed!
Laura, Illinois is the same weekend with some different rules. Shoot me an email if you want rules and classes for either.

Appreciate the reply. Appears I'll be a spectator if radials aren't allowed. Put them new on everything except the 4166 which is still running the original shoes. Before your reply I was considering using a bar to hitch the 730 to the 830 (both have clevis hitches) and tow one behind the other. Approximately a 20 mile hike. Alternative would be to have the neighbor/tenant haul them on his semi. Got a 30 ft goose but haven't licensed the F350 for eight years. Don't like the fuel consumption of a 460 engine with auto and 410 gear, so it only travels between the buildings hauling a big generator, compressor and tools. Pulled a few years ago in Laura and really haven't used the 830 since.
